Also, I checked the ads. I would speak to your owner again. Those companies are not individually advertising on your site. The clothing distributor MMAWarehouse is. Each of those logos just link back to their particular section on MMAWarehouse's site. That could get you in trouble with those various companies since they're not actually advertising with you.
We won't promote you, but at the conclusion a summary article will be written and posted.

Just being on this site at all seems like a black mark now. I guess any competitor or ignornant "hater" can start an inquisition on this site and just screw with whomever they like with little or no recourse while average good meaning martial artists take the hit.
This seems slanted and unjust IMO. Mind you I could care less cause approval I dont need and ranks and certifications I dont claim. This is just my honest assement so far of the site and the process. I am happy to answer anything as I have cause I can back it all up anyway.
when and who...?
when is it concluded and who decides that....?
what should I do....
should I get everyone that knows me or has trained with me or my past instructors to come onto this site and back up my statements or would they all just be subject to this kind of....hmmm...investigation as well.
No, when this is done, and IMO that will be after your competition. The article will be written and posted seperately. This thread will be closed with the link to the summary article.
If you want to get people to back you up and post here be my guest. Their thoughts and opinions are welcome here.
I open a school and after only a month because some baseless "hater" throughs up a thread I have to wait until someone from my school competes and the results are posted before a decision is made.
Is everyone else held to this competition standard. My background, timeline and instructors are unquestionable becuase it is all real and documented. I have pictuess and certs and all kinds of other things....not to mention they themselves would acknowledge me if I felt like subjecting them to this kind of thing which I don't. I have students and friends and anyone can come down to the center and see me in action teaching each and every night.
Heck ask questions whatever. but to think any of my guys will be ready to compete in a month or two from starting at scratch is unreal. And for me to wait when I have been COMPLETELY open and answering all questions seems ridiculous.....
The thing is your background isn't documented. It's just what you've told us. The big problem is lack of competition experience for yourself. Without an established competition record the only way we have to know if you're a good instructor is to see how your students do. That or, if a local member is able to travel there and take part in some classes. On that line are their any NC bullies able to go check the place out?
what a joke....send do someone...yeah like maybe "Chuck" and then he can come back and now matter what he sees dog the place for his own personal reasons. Who on this site is validated. you get to know all about us, my real name, cell phone, website....you can come down animously and take a class and then trash us or not...but we never even get to know who our accusers are....what are your backgrounds and qualifacations to be standing in judgement of us?
